{3} Cards from Patter

Hello everyone! It's the end of the month, and it's my turn to share. Today I have three cards for you that all use the new Ombre Dreams papers. I hope you find some inspiration for this new, gorgeous paper line!

On this card, I used the Tangier Page Panel. This is a 12x12 panel but I cut just a small piece to use on the card. The paper is called Ginger's Dream from the new Ombre Dreams paper line.
To color the chipboard, I used three different colors of gelatos to match the papers.

Thank You
I don't work with purple very often but Joyce's Dream paper has such beautiful colors in it, that I couldn't wait to play with it. You can see the paper is mostly lavender with hints of torquoise and green. Truly beautiful! I also used the chipboard piece called Lace Rounds. This particular piece fits perfectly on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card!
To color this piece of chipboard, I just painted it with gesso and pearlescent liquid acrylic.

Just Because
For this card, I used Charlotte's Dream paper. I also added a bit of modeling paste and mist though I hated to cover up the beautiful paper! I also used the Bits of Honey chipboard and just covered it in gesso. I wanted to leave it white because of the colors scheme I chose.

Here I'm again to show some things I made with Blue Fern products.

The first is the cover and the first page of a mini album, project "No regrets" that will do throughout the year, with reflective about my life...

In the cover's chipboards I used acrilic paint, liquid pearl and colorless relief.

In this chippie I used just acrilic paint, some gelatos and spray ink...

A Card & a Tag Featuring Ombré Dreams!

Hello everyone! 

Erin Blegen with you today to share a card and a tag that I created using the brand new "Ombré Dreams" paper collection, as well as some new chipboard pieces too!

"You Make Me Smile" 
This paper collection comes just in time for summer- with its fresh, light colors and dreamy patterns, I couldn't wait to start putting it to good use! Here I've created a card using the "Ginger's Dream" paper on top and "Leslie's Dream" for the base. There was just enough design in the upper right-hand corner of the "Ginger's Dream" paper to perfectly compliment the card design I had in mind.

I'm really loving circular pieces and frames at the moment, and this "Treasured Floral Frame" was just what I needed for my card. I took a white Prima Chalk Edger ink pad and used that to mostly cover the piece, leaving just a hint of the raw chipboard to show through. I then wrapped it with white wire cord.

Next, I have a pretty little gift tag for you :)

"Follow Your Dream"
Everyone loves butterflies {including me!}, so I was very excited to see the new "Royal Monarchs" that were recently released! Paired with a set of the {also new} "Layering Stems", I thought the combination suited nicely this particular sentiment.

The butterfly piece was covered with Ranger Glossy Accents and then sprinkled with microbeads. Allow the glossy accents to dry on their own rather than heating them with a heat gun as the glossy accents tend to bubble up and scorch otherwise. The stems were misted with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in "Blush" and, while wet, covered with clear embossing powder and set with a heat gun.

2 Layout and Card by Yuko

Hi! evryone! It's Yuko.
This month I made 2 layouts and 1 card.
I 'm  so happy sharing my projects to you!

This paper is one which I like very much.
Grain background is very nice!!!

  The letter of the title colors it with pink ink.
 I painted with jesso  at random after.

I      I added structure to Shabby Layered Frame with modeling paste.
I stacked the thing which cut a cardboard thin on the top.

I painted Manor Hinges with ceramic stucco.

 photo CIMG6688_zpsbd7e5f4d.jpgI wanted to make a translucent layout and colored white card stock with mists.

After the chipboard applied gesso,
 it included mist in the brush and it applied it partially.

May Creations with Jelissa

Hello Blue Fern fans!

I'm so glad to be back here to share two layouts with you, created with gorgeous BFS papers and chipboards.


I wanted a light white-washed look for this layout and treated my Blue Fern Studios chipboards accordingly.

I used the "Blessings" word from "Spiritually Speaking" word set as my title and kept it very simple with a coat of gesso, some dabbing with grey chalk ink and distressed the edges with some black ink.

And layered in between my patterned papers are pieces from "Mini Ring Things". I covered with a coat of gesso and painted with watercolours to match my background. This was followed by colored texture pastes to give more dimension.

Spiritually Speaking word set
Mini Ring Things


My second layout uses the gorgeous Blue Fern Garden collection papers. I have very few 12x12 sheets left for my background, but am really fortunate to have one last sheet of "Parlour" left! I love the light blue and green with just a tinge of brown in the wood grain design, which matches my photo perfectly.

I have several scrap pieces of Blue Fern Garden left as well and those are just ideal for layering.

I used the Wildflower Flourish Bundle chipboard here. 

A word cut out from "Calling Cards" which I used as my title. 

Tucking in Checker Bits and the Graduated circles chipboard pieces into the main cluster.

Just in case you're wondering how I put this page together, below is a start-to-finish video tutorial I put together. Hope you enjoy watching it and find the techniques for altering the chippies useful!
